Ciara Pratt

Ciara Pratt started her college career at Saint Louis University - Madrid Campus in Spain, where she formed some of the strongest friendships of her life with students and teachers from around the world.

She is now completing her fourth year as a major in Latin American Studies at the University of Virginia in her hometown of Charlottesville. She specializes in Spanish and Portuguese language and the business practices of Latin America.

After graduating, she would like to work on innovative development projects that bring together private and public enterprise to increase the transparency and equity of the development process.

She also enjoys cats, walks in the woods, fantasy novels, British television, and video games. One day she hopes to explore how the interactive medium of video games can be used to tell the stories of the world’s marginalized peoples and remind people of the common humanity that unites us no matter in which country or culture we grow up.
